Hello Guys, the prior owner replaced the carpet and headliner. The back carpet is glued to the headliner (and falling apart). Is this correct. Is there a better way to do this. Thank you.

From stock the carpet is longer and the end is unfinished.
It rolls over the edge of the firewall and tucks into the crevice as does the end of the perforated headliner, then a piece of ~8 mm cording gets pushed in to hold them tight.

Thank you. My carpet looks to have a finished edge. How do you think I can easily fix this. Do people use screws.

On both of my bugs I glued that portion on. Haven't had an issue with it peeling back off. My 65 was installed in 1998.

Thank you. What did you glue it with.

In 2013 I was lucky to view the red '65 Sedan seen here at Classic VW Bugs' shop in person. All original, ca. 8000 miles! Here are some close-ups of the rear carpet and headliner sections.

Thank you. That looks nice. I don't think I can undo what I have at this point.

Is your carpet not long enough to roll over and tuck in?

Is it glued down firmly? If it is loose perhaps you can undo it from the floor/firewall so you can pull it up and bias more material towards the top.

Thanks Bruce. I will look to see if I have slack. If I can roll if over, how to I secure it. Not necessarily looking for "correct" but easy and quick.
